no, never done that, but it sounds like fun!
We've done something similar with the dogs all in a row, but not in a triangle.
My favorite variation, however, requires one more person, or a dog that will work for someone else, and that's the tandem honor walk-up.
Everyone gets in a line with their dogs. Some handlers might have a dog on each side, if they have 2 dogs or if they are working the thrower's dog.
The thrower is about 30-40 yards away. On command, everyone starts walking forward with their dog(s). At some point, the thrower throws the bird, or bumper but a bird, especially live and shackled, is better. The dogs all have to sit.
Then the thrower says which dog will get the retrieve.
ETA---Tito LOVES this game because he gets a huge percentage of the retrieves, as the other dogs we've done it with are all high octane labs with ants in their pants and the steadiest dog usually gets the bird!
